Always a great lunch Tues.- Fri., and a wonderful breakfast Tues.- Sun.

This is the go to place for lunching with friends. They build your sandwich right at the counter as you watch. The French Dip, Poor Boy and Cranberry Karen are favorites. Always yummy!! Breakfast has so many choices that it's hard to decide. I love the spinach and mushroom omelet, my husband... read more

If you really want a great breakfast with lots of warmth, this is the place to go to in Auburn! I have had their lunch sandwiches, and they are good too. It is not open for dinner. Really the only thing bad about this place is sometimes the wait (since it is a popular local establishment). So, if you are... More

I first ate lunch at Sun Break at their old location in 1988. Without knowing any better I ordered a whole Poor Boy sandwich. My lunch companion's eyes got really big and he told me he had never gotten more than half a Poor Boy. It was HUGE! I ate the whole thing out of pride, but never ordered more... More

What can I say but I adore Sun Break Cafe. Large, no huge, portions of good food and buzzing family atmosphere to match. Make sure to read all the signs for the employees hanging almost out of sight to patrons in back. This is a real and successful American small business in action. Go and see for yourself and you'll... More

We now live in Texas and whenever we come to visit our family we try to meet for breakfast here. The cafe is down to earth with a small country store attached to it. The portions are large and food is good. The staff is kind and the service is great. Come hungry and leave happy.

We loved this place! The food was amazing! You got to try their fresh apple cider and their home made banana bread! Large portions and above and beyond friendly service! If there is a wait.... It is so worth the wait!
